Photographer's Note

As a fiercly patriotic India, i never show and upload such pictures which project poverty and misery of India. India is great and has everything. Its the world's largest democracy and byword for immense wealth and terrible poverty, where billionaires and beggars co-exist without conflict. Where people who construct multi-storey houses never stay below cemented roofs in their entire life time. Where many students have done wonders and education is a family discipline.
But this picture forces me upload. This is the picture of Blind Univeristy Students of India performing in Haridwar during the Maha Kumbh Mela 2010. (for details about MahaKumbh see photo title Mahakumbh in my gallery).

I have converted it into B&W. Yes, because of blindness. Each time I see this shot, I get filled with pain. I thank God. I IMAGINE life without light. Its painfully, fearfully unimaginable and sad. Blindness is great deprivation. These pople are not begging. They are performing to attract attention THAT THEY TOO CAN....
